Each line would have coffees and espressos, and each line (and its category) needed to be immediately recognizable. We employed color, shape and a little figure ground to differentiate between the lines and categories. The color system was developed loosely around a 1940′s craftsman—workshirt blue, denim, utility orange, metallic copper, crisp white, no-nonsense black and a rich black-brown… in honor of the coffee.”

The Tiempo packaging was developed with reference to the hand-drawn and hand-made. The packaging encompasses some nostalgic type treatment and combines that with detailed illustrative line work. By using a spot varnish it combines rustic, uncoated finishes with smooth, polished textures.

Words and design mix together, words become design and they beat a syncopate rhythm.

33. Good Co. Coffee Packaging Designed by Landor

Coffee Packaging Design Inspiration

“o give the brand its voice, we took inspiration from the shops’ office-lobby locations and borrowed the corporate speak that a professional endures daily. The name we chose, Good Company Coffee, or Good Co. for short, is a dual play on the ideas of “being in good company” and “enjoying good coffee.” Language plays an important role in the expression of the Good Co. brand, and through the use of double meanings and wordplay, we turned business jargon into dryly comedic, relevant commentary that also describes the varieties of coffee. The brand voice works in tandem with a black-and-white illustration–based visual style that similarly draws from corporate culture with infographics, iconography, stylized charts, and graphs. From the store environment, menus, packaging, and barista behavior—it all adds up to a strong and entertaining experience.”

34. Noire Coffee Packaging Designed by Oscar Guerrero Cañizares

Coffee Packaging Design Inspiration

36. Starbucks Coffee Packaging Designed by Starbucks & Lippincott

Coffee Packaging Design Inspiration

“From the start, we wanted to recognize and honor the important equities of the iconic Starbucks logo. So we broke down the four main parts of the mark — color, shape, typeface and the Siren. After hundreds of explorations, we found the answer in simplicity. Removing the words from the mark, bringing in the green, and taking the Siren out of her ring. For forty years she’s represented coffee, and now she is the star.

The details came next. The 20-year old logo was built in the early days of AutoTrace and it showed — points everywhere. We improved composition, brought in more sophisticated stroke width and spacing and a smoother line flow. When it came to her — the Siren — we enhanced her form in subtle ways, smoothing her hair, refining her facial features, weighting the scales on her tail to bring the focus to her face. We enlisted the branding firm of Lippincott to help with these refinements, and give us a better global perspective on the entire identity system.”

37. Caravan Coffee Packaging Designed by Inhouse

Coffee Packaging Design Inspiration

“London calling… Identity design for new London Roastery, Bar & Restaurant — Caravan.

They offer a small range of quality coffee blends, and wanted to offer their very own iced coffee – bottled in the store and sold within a day.
